He’s Not on Any Ballot, But He’s BAAAACK!

By Debbie Schlussel

In between federal trials, one of Barack Obama’s old (and former) friends is back in the limelight in a questionable ad for pistachios, video below.  Also below, another of the pistachio industry’s new, um, “spokesmodels.”  Eating a pistachio off a tanning bed?  Eeuuww.  Not exactly a way to promote pistachios as something you wanna eat.  It’s about as sanitary as licking a stripper pole. The ad looks kinda like, “Married to the Mob Chomps Pistachios,” minus the beauty of Michelle Pfeiffer.

I prefer the one with retired USMC Drill Sergeant R. Lee Ermey (of Full Metal Jacket fame) who ORDERS the pistachio to crack! That plus his turn as a drill sergeant turned therapist in the GEICO commercials proves he’s still making a living being himself.

I love that keyboard cat spot! Adorable cat looks like our sweet cat who died this Summer.

LOL! R. Lee Ermey has starred in the two best commercials of the year. What a gem he is!

I also like the vampire one. Eating a pistachio from a tanning bed is prolly the cleanest and most wholesome that nasty skank “Snooky” has done in her life.

Parrots love pistachios. They go crazy for the treats. I like to think of all the beautiful birds I know when I think of pistachios!

Remember the pistachio food poisoning 1 1/2 years ago?
